“In a nutshell life is fun” finally revealed!
┬ęcopyright2015owpp

The 12th of February I wrote in this post that I was busy with a new project & posted a photo with it see…
https://oawritingspoemspaintings.wordpress.com/?s=busy+with+new+project well, it actually started in February 2014!
Sometimes an idea begins with a spark & mine was cracking nuts… observing how nature is perfect, feeling there was something to the line, folds, cracks & even fresh mold from the ones rotting… yes, I thought, life’s journey is all that, the good & the not so…

That was long before “Life’s cobblestones” was born, actually that one came as an accident ­čÖé see… https://oawritingspoemspaintings.wordpress.com/?s=life%27s+cobblestones
I was preparing the canvas with a thick white coat of paint for this project but it wasn’t subtle enough & on the advice of my mentor, let it rest… to make a long story short, one thing led to another & to my surprise “Life’s cobblestones” matured into completion as a result of the “In a nutshell” project!
“Evolution trek” https://oawritingspoemspaintings.wordpress.com/?s=evolution+trek & “Odyssey” https://oawritingspoemspaintings.wordpress.com/?s=odyssey are all part of a collection of projects on the same theme, the one of life’s journey.
Note in the close ups (for you to be able to see the details) the half nutshells, the colours, the ones shining but authentic in their original “dressing”, the whole hazelnuts small & shining (see in full photo) the beauty of the moldy ones, the specks of nutshell residue, the white one at the far right corner… they all are respectful to the idea of life’s journey.
You are the observer free to use your own interpretation!

I’ll be posting here, the whole set of photos following the long process, step by step till its completion, I hope you’ll enjoy it!
Click on photo to enlarge please. All orders are more than welcome! Just let me know in a comment if you are interested in further details.
